Recently, Taylor Swift candidly participated in Vogue‘s ’73 Questions’ series whilst letting the team into her Beverly Hills bungalow; and in doing so, the 26-year-old singer revealed some things you may not already know (like her favourite foods, and that she really, really loves Matt Damon’s The Martian).

Below, we’ve rounded up the 10 things we found most interesting to learn about Tay:

1. Her back-up plan if she wasn’t a singer

‘I might be in advertising. Maybe, like, coming up with slogans and concepts is the same as hooks and songs.’

2. Her favourite food and drink

If calories didn’t count, slim Swift would eat chicken tenders everyday; the last thing she baked was a ‘gluten-free, dairy-free cake’; and if you ever take her through a drive-thru? Order the songstress ‘a cheesburger, fries, [and a] chocolate shake’.

Oh, and her drink of choice? ‘A vodka-Diet Coke’.

3. Her advice for her 19-year-old self

‘If I could talk to myself at 19, I would say, “Hey, you’re gonna date like a normal 20-something should be allowed to, but you’re going to be a national lightning rod for slut-shaming.”‘

4. Her secret talent

‘I have double-jointed elbows’

5. The best gift she’s ever recieved

‘My boyfriend planted an olive tree in my yard for Christmas,’

Aw, Calvin Harris you sweetheart.

6. Her biggest fear

The star said she was terrified of Coachella! But thankfully, she seems to have conquered that.

7. She wants ‘an honorary doctorate degree’

…Because Ed Sheeran has one, and I feel like he looks down on me now because I don’t have one.’

8. She has no secrets from her friends

Despite being one of the most famous people in the world, she said the thing that surprised her the most was how loyal her pals are:

‘I’m pleasantly surprised by the fact that I tell my friends absolutely everything, and it never ends up getting out.’

9. Her advice for anyone who wants to be a singer

‘Get a good lawyer’


10. What she wanted to be when she grew up

T-Swiz says that ‘I knew that my dad was a stock broker, but I didn’t know what a stock broker was… yet I walked around telling people “I’m going to be a stock broker when I grow up”‘.

Oh, and also that she is obsessed with cats -but you probably already knew that.
